The Edmonds Stingrays
Edmonds Stingrays Swim Team serves over 60 Special Olympics swimmers in South Snohomish and North King Counties. Our team of senior and junior volunteers provide a positive and encouraging atmosphere, making every attempt to include all swimmers, regardless of their intellectual abilities. The strength of our swim team is our volunteers. We are blessed to be served by 20 high school and college volunteers that have strong aquatics backgrounds and want to make a difference in our community. Special Olympics is free for all athletes.
